Adjust font size:

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Thursday the date for the next round of six-party talks, regarding the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, is yet to be decided.

China is working with the other five parties to come up with a date for the next Heads of Delegation meeting, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said at a press conference.

He stressed that the six party heads would like to meet as soon as possible. No deadline was given as to when a date would be announced.

When asked by a journalist to comment on current tensions between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Republic of Korea (ROK), Qin said China has been committed to security and stability in the Korean Peninsula.

Qin said he hoped the north and south sides of the Peninsula would reconcile through dialogues, adding it would be conducive to the denuclearization process.

"We hope relevant parties can abide by their commitments, go in the same direction and make joint efforts to promote the process of the six-party talks," Qin said.

The previous Heads of Delegation meeting of the six-party talks, involving China, the DPRK, Japan, the ROK, Russia and the United States, was held July 10-12 of this year in Beijing.
